Lysander Chosen as Combined Finalists in 2019 AITD Excellence Awards

Lysander is delighted to be chosen as finalists for two awards in the Australian Institute of Training Development Excellence Awards 2019. These prestigious industry awards recognise outstanding achievement in learning and development and in organisational development.   

As combined finalists, we are recognised in both the Best Leadership Development Program and Best Blended Learning Solution award categories. This achievement comes as result of the work we’ve done with our long-term client Royal Automotive Club of Victoria (RACV), where we designed, developed and implemented a four-tiered leadership program across their Member Service Delivery arm. The fully-blended leadership program combines carefully curated, micro-learning on our digital platform, with high impact, face-to-face workshops that come together into learner journeys – connecting cohorts and delivering tangible results that include long-term behavioural change and demonstrate key business indicators such as reduced absenteeism and increased engagement.

Our dedicated team has worked exceptionally hard on this project and we’re extremely humbled to see our passion, innovation and client-focussed approach recognised at industry level.  

The winners of the awards will be announced on Thursday 17 October at the AITD Gala Dinner at the Showtime Events Centre in Melbourne.

About the Awards

Best Leadership Development Program
This award is presented to an organisation that has implemented a leadership development program to enhance individual or team performance and contribute to positive organisational performance. The entry should demonstrate the development processes/methodologies/modes of the program and how they contribute to the overall measures of success. The program must demonstrate the direct, measurable impact on individual and organisational performance.

Best Blended Learning Solution
This award is presented to an organisation who can demonstrate excellence and impact by utilising a combination of learning delivery mechanisms, methodologies and modes in a new or existing learning initiative. The entry should focus on how the combination of delivery mechanisms, methodologies and modes has been applied to improve the quality of outcomes for learners or improve the overall effectiveness of the learning initiative, rather than the actual mechanisms themselves. Applicants may define success in implementing a blended learning solution around various measures including: outcomes of the learning initiative, uptake, completion rates, reach, innovation, development and delivery efficiencies, and/or impact on learners.
